I didn’t know you could even mention that base -LOL. I was there 66-67. It was good duty...loads of girls from Europe on their way to Greece, great beach and campsite near Taranato. Anchi - bella regazza

Yeah - went from Security Sevrvice to Electronic Security Command between your and my "visits". The Flare Nine (Elephant Cage) antenna had many locals thinking we had missiles ready to go.

I lived in Specchiola, a little resort town that filled up with Itals in the Summer and where Americans could have elected their own town Mayor in the Winter. Lots of them luscious string bikinis where they could make it from a pair of boot laces and still have half a lace left over. Mostly went to the local beaches (Horse Shoe, etc.) and they even made one nude before I left - almost drove my Fiat into the water as I came a round a dune... Taranto was beautiful and folks still don't believe me when I tell them you could drop a nickle in 20' of water and tell if it landed heads or tails. Loved the Alimentaries and open markets in the surrounding towns.

We kept a tent at a Taranato campground all summer - cost $15.00 a month. It was so cool during the week when only the Austrians or English lay on the beach...yum. String had not shown up and it was the “Summer(s) of Love” in 66 or 67 when Beatles rolled out Rubber Soul, and SGt Pepper. You could eat forever at the best places on $20.00. The Cage had more than one local winking saying “Lei una spiea.”
